Who Owns the Road? We All Do.
A Complete Streets Workshop
As traffic increases, interest in active lifestyles is also on the rise. At the same time, state and town budgets tighten. How do we balance priorities? Can we make it safer for families to walk and bike in our town?
Please join us for a presentation by Tom Errico, Director of Traffic Engineering at T.Y. Lin International. Tom Errico has over two decades of experience as a traffic engineer working throughout Maine and New England.
Tom’s feature presentation will review options to balance community needs, and share best practices from around the country for improving transportation and active living choices.
Light meal and refreshments will be served.
Monday, October 7. 5:30-7:30pm
At the Brooks Student Center at the University of Southern Maine Gorham Campus
This Workshop is sponsored by the Cumberland County Public Health and Transportation Coalition, PHiT. PHiT members include The Portland Area Comphrehensive Transportation System, The Greater Portland Council of Governments, The Bicycle Coalition of Maine, The Opportunity Alliance, Cumberland County Government, the Cumberland District Public Health Council, and others.
